This particular athlete was accustomed to having to hobble a bit after sitting/lying for a long period of time when his ankle was not being used. After his first session with the Life Light therapy, he messaged me later completely blown away. He was able to go straight into walking on his ankle without the hobbling and had not even noticed he had done that until a while after. He was able to forget he had an injury and move and act like he would have if he was not injured. The Life Light combined with the soft tissue manipulation helped him to get over that last bit of stiffness he was still experiencing in his ankle.
Hamstring strain grade 2.
The athlete was seen about 3 hours after the injury took place. He was scanned by the sports medicine physician to determine the full extent of the injury at which time it was diagnosed as a grade 2 sprain to the biceps femoris. Less than 48 hours later, he was scanned again using the diagnostic ultrasound and the doctor, not knowing that the Life Light was applied both days using the protocols for inflammation and soft tissue healing, sent me the pictures of what he saw. His message to me that accompanied the pictures, “No hyperaemia… Well done.”
Great effective tool.
The Life Light has been a great addition to my practice for both the rehab and massage departments. I have used it on a cross section of injuries from neck pain due to axial loaded impact to a tib/fib ORIF post op. I have had my clients report significant improvements. Whether chronic or acute, the Life Light paired with the soft tissue manipulation made a huge difference that allowed me to progress the athlete’s recovery on a continuous basis.
